I really like what North Coast puts out. It is just disappointing to have to go out of state to pick up a bottle of their fine brew.

This is a great example of a Belgian strong. The coloring, smell, and taste are really spot on.

Pranqster is blondish in color with just a little darker tint.

The flavor and smell are really clean. I like this beer. I recommend picking up this beer.

Appearance is golden yellow with not much head nor lacing.

Nose is like a blonde Belgian: apricot, juicy fruit, and a mild floral component.

Taste is delicious. Light malt and juicy fruit are the main notes. There is also a mild woodiness and nuttiness. The flavor really "pops."

Mouthfeel is very freshing; almost juicy. It is also very creamy. It has a good amount of carbonation and a clean finish.

Overall, the appearance is deceptively unimpressive because the flavor and mouthfeel are spot-on to style, and a pleasure to drink.
